Who We Are

More than an organization – we’re part of a movement!

 FREDLA is the only national association of family-run organizations dedicated solely to all children, youth, and young adults with social, emotional, substance use, and multi-systems challenges, their families, and the agencies serving them.  Our role is to reflect the collective experiences of family organizations across the country in our work, and to develop the tools they need to accomplish theirs.

Our Mission

To build strong, sustainable family-run organizations and together influence policy and practice to achieve positive outcomes for all children, youth and families
